Despite progress in sexuality education in some countries, too many still cannot provide children and young people with the knowledge and skills they need to ensure their health and well-being. This is what the new United Nations report on Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) reveals.
Too often teachers are unprepared and students do not study all of the subjects they should be studying and misinformation hinders the development of ESC. Even today, millions of children and young people receive little information on how to manage their transition to adulthood.
The findings of this report, published by UNESCO, UN Women, UNAIDS, WHO, UNFPA, and UNICEF, are disseminated during the Generation Equality Forum, during which UNESCO will announce a series of concrete commitments on girls’ education.
According to UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Education Stefania Giannini, the report The Path to Comprehensive Sexuality Education: A State of the World Report reveals the progress countries are making in providing quality ESC in schools for all learners, while highlighting that much remains to be done.
